Last night I couldn’t sleep. I had so much anxiety thinking about Ellie’s first day of preschool. This morning I woke up early, picked out her clothes, ironed her top, prepared her snack, and made sure I had all the necessary paperwork completed and ready to go.
It’s such a big day for her and as I dressed her up this morning she said, “Mommy, I’m so excited for my first day of school!”
I think Isabel and I are having a harder time being away from Ellie, than Ellie is having being away from us. Isabel was pretty sad to leave her sister at school and has already commented several times this morning that she misses her sister.
It’s now 10am. I only have two more hours before I pick her up, but the time seems to be going by so slowly. I miss her dearly. I’ll be honest, I had to stop myself from crying this morning. Yes, I’m one of those moms. Even if she is literally just up the street (only a few minutes away), it’s still hard.
